Widely considered to be the future of education - the International Baccalaureate programme is a challenging yet holistically fulfilling learning experience for senior school students.
The qualification that is achieved following a course that puts greater focus on independent learning and intellectual rigor, is recognised by top universities worldwide. Students who complete the programme have displayed skills which are highly sought by establishments and employers alike.
Students choose six subjects - three to study to Standard Level (SL) and three to greater depth at Higher Level (HL). Subjects are selected in the form of one from each of the following groups:
- Language A (English, French, Spanish or German. Other languages such as Russian, Arabic, Mandarin, Japanese, or Italian may be available through private tuition)
- Language B (Either English, Spanish, Mandarin, Japanese, Arabic, and French or German B; or French, German, Italian, and Mandarin or Japanese ab initio)
- Individuals & Societies (History, Geography, Economics, Business and Management)
- Natural Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, or Environmental Systems & Societies)
- Mathematics (Maths (HL and SL) and Mathematical Studies)
- Arts and electives (Visual Art, Music, and Theatre Arts)
